Good Morning Cosplay Island!
Good Morning! It is 9am, and the weather (for once) is actually fairly decent!

I'm Niffer. I've been cosplaying since 2008 when I started Uni and our Anime Soc took a group to Expo. My first costume was a hilariously embarrassing Yuuki from Vampire Knight that I'd gotten off e-bay. Since then I've made my costumes, which I looooooove to do! (Almost as much as how much I love Mudkips -jks)
But despite my long time cosplaying I hadn't really gotten into Cosplay Island until the last few months, so I thought I would introduce myself so people have some idea of who I am before I begin scaring everyone on the forums

Making the costume is SO MUCH fun and I have been growing ever anal about getting the details of the costume perfect. I made a Horo costume for Aya 2011, which was my most recent, and even then I still didn't get it perfect (look out for version 2.0 at Expo). I would still consider myself a padawan and what to get even better even faster so there is still a LOT of things I don't know and need to learn.

Cosplay aside, I love Japanese. I started it as a hobby in 2006 (I think) and have slowly slowly been improving over the years (at such a shockingly slow pace it makes me want to cry!) I regret not doing Japanese or Computing at Uni, and instead chose Anthropology, BUT that did mean I got to spend a year in Japan which I just got back from this year.

My Anthropology has also allowed me to do a dissertation and by sheer coincidence *coughcough* I am doing it on cosplayers in Japan and the UK. SO if anyone's up for a skype interview at some point then that would be amazing and I would love you forever!

That's probably about it from me for introductions. I look forward to meeting even more cosplayers through this and if you have any questions or anything please ask! I won't bite ^__^

Nice to meet you~

I have to say you sound pretty awsome! I'm looking forward to meeting you and chatting on the boards soon!

Wow, you sound like you've done so much, I'm a little bit jealous xD

I'm in agreement with the whole making being so much fun. It's my favourite part of cosplay, personally I would never buy anything premade (although I have no problem with people doing it).

Nice to meet you. I'm so jealous that you've been to study in Japan!

Hi there and welcome to CosplayIsland ^_^

I'm Sj, one of the staff members here. You're going to LOVE it!

I'd be happy to help out your dissertation. They're a pain in the ass and any help is always good!

YAY! I'm really bad at keeping up to date with sites like this but I hope I can! What kinds of things are people interested in apart from cosplay?

I am drawn to your curiousity and zeal!

I studied industrial engineering, part of that was anthropometrics and ergonomics. I guess that's the closest I could say for what you've done.

I've got a huge essay on my profile about me, i'd only be typing that out again if I were to explain here.

Pleased to meet'cha :3

Generally you can see that in people's profiles. But if you're really curious about anyone in particular, it might be nice to drop them a private message as well ^_^
